Dak Prescott helped the Cowboys shake off a poor start with a career-best 284 yards in first-half passing yardage to lead them to a 35-27 win against the Detroit Lions.
The Cowboys needed all of Prescott’s yard because Lions’ backup quarterback kept his team in the game into the fourth quarter.
Here are three things we learned about the Cowboys from this game:
1. Prescott peaking at right time: With 444 yards and three touchdown passes against the Lions, Prescott has thrown for more than 1,000 yards and nine TDs over the past three weeks. On Sunday, he completed 29 of 46 attempts.
2. Cowboys would be much better if Elliott were soaring as well: This was the second consecutive week that top running back Ezekiel Elliott didn’t register 100 yards in a game, and Prescott threw for more than 300 yards. However, one of Prescott’s TD tosses went to Elliott.
Be like Barry Bonds? Why Dallas Cowboys coach Jon Kitna is telling Dak Prescott just that
Dak Prescott's interception on his first play Monday night was a direct violation of what Cowboys QBs coach Jon Kitna calls The Barry Bonds Mindset.
Prescott tossed a 7- yard TD pass to Elliott to give Dallas a 20-13 lead on the ensuing possession. Elliott accounted for 57 of the 75 yards on the drive. Michael Gallup turned a screen pass on third-and-15 at the Cowboys 35 into a 25- yard gain. Prescott connected with Cole Beasley for 21 yards
Prescott had 270 yards passing, tossed for one touchdown and also ran for a score. Elliott also had a TD reception . “It was absolutely mandatory Carson Wentz threw a pair of TD passes to Zach Ertz, but his pass to Ertz on fourth down fell a yard short of a first down at the Cowboys 29 with 1:09 left.
Prescott also had touchdown passes to Randall Cobb (19 yards) and Tony Pollard (21 yards).
Elliott had 16 carries for 45 yards. That doesn't mean he didn't have fun. After his TD catch and run,that was highlighted by NBC last week on Sunday Night Football.
3. Making the playoffs will take some work: The Cowboys should have had an easier time against the Lions who are playing without their No. 1 offensive weapon, Matthew Stafford (back).
The Lions, with Jeff Driskel replacing Stafford at quarterback, had a first-quarter lead of 7-0 and led 14-10 in the second quarter.
That allows the Cowboys (6-4) to hold their tenuous lead in the NFC north. Regardless what happens later Sunday to the Eagles (5-4) against the New England Patriots, the Cowboys will continue to hold first place because of a head-to-head win against the Eagles.
